Refuge Pe. Balduino Rambo (Portuguese: Refúgio Pe. Balduino Rambo) was a Brazilian Antarctic summer installation named after the botanist Father Balduino Rambo. Located on King George Island, South Shetland Islands, Antarctica, it depended both logistically and administratively on Comandante Ferraz; it was dismantled in 2004.

Established in the summer of 1985, it could accommodate up to 6 scientists for up to 40 days.[1]
